Quick house clean up #2: Throw Away all Trash. Trash is probably the easiest of the 5 offenders to deal with because all you have to do is bag it and put it in the dumpster!
Whether your problem is piled up junk mail, unread newspapers, trails of goldfish crackers from your toddler, or empty food wrappers, trash will make your house look like a pig sty in no time if you don’t get it under control. By the same token, clearing out the trash will make your house look cleaner instantly!
- Grab a trash bag and just start walking through the house.
- Be ruthless and make sure that all trash goes into the bag without a second thought.
- If something makes you think for more than 10 seconds about whether or not it counts as trash, set it aside for later when you have time to declutter and organize.
- Once full, immediately tie the trash bags up and put them in the dumpster or the trash barrels for garbage day.
